Just Want To See


Pastel Sky, looking like a water color. That wasn’t my intention, but that’s what happened. In this day of all things digital photographers are trying to make their work look like anything but photography. I understand the need to take things to the next level. I do it myself more times than not. Just don’tContinue reading “Just Want To See”

Where The Wild Things Grow


This doesn’t happen very often, but when the sky lights up like this it’s usually in winter, with nice low, golden light. Because I know that some of you may be wondering, I had my “procedure” yesterday. It lasted for less than two hours, which includes a mountain of paperwork and a billion questions. TheContinue reading “Where The Wild Things Grow”

What Does It Mean To Travel


On a Sunday morning. I realized I haven’t published multiple pictures in some time. I’ve been photographing bits and piece of trains forever because I like them. I grew up riding the Super Chief and the El Capitan and eventually The City of Los Angeles from Los Angeles to New York City via Chicago. OfContinue reading “What Does It Mean To Travel”

Mistakes


One day in winter when the sun was starting to lower, I saw the it explode behind a tree. Light and color went flying everywhere. I left without my hat. After seeing the image on the monitor I started thinking random thoughts. Again. I have a friend who lives in Vermont. The state has doneContinue reading “Mistakes”

Number Three


I used to do this a lot. I’d brace my camera on the dashboard of the car, set everything to auto and let the camera do its thing. The only part of my that ever touched the camera was one finger. The one I used to push the shutter release button. I didn’t even lookContinue reading “Number Three”

Winter Light


Low winter light. It’s powerful, clean and almost explosive at the ends of the day. Especially if the cloud cover is broken or there are almost clear skies. I got lucky last week. After a day of rain, the sun broke through at just about dusk. Man, did it break through. It was powerful. ItContinue reading “Winter Light”

Pieces of Paper


Amazing. Last evening, the light was just amazing. As usual, I was in the wrong place. So, I did what I could. This picture fits nicely into a sub-genre of landscape pictures called, ” New Landscape.” Me? I just call it a picture. Or, photograph. I don’t think photography has to be sliced and dicedContinue reading “Pieces of Paper”

Picture A Day


I used to photograph a year-long project called picture a day. Or, PAD for short. The idea is to make a picture every day. There are a couple of ways to do this. One is to shoot just only one picture while taking your time to find the right angle, framing and light. The otherContinue reading “Picture A Day”

Winter Walk


Walking at dusk. Along the levee. On the Eastbank. Peaceful. Quiet. Calming. This is one of those “on my way to someplace else” pictures. I was leaving New Orleans, heading upriver. I forget where I was going, but one of the most relaxing ways to leave the city is along River Road. Even during rush hour,Continue reading “Winter Walk”
